Perfect Paints Stacking Pumpkins for the win!

Hi all! Becky here with another fun fall project!

I know you have seen those Dollar Tree Stacking Pumpkins everywhere. I sent the hubby out on a mission to find me a few so that I could make some decorations for Thanksgiving decorating.

If you can get your hands on some....grab up some paints and flowers and let's start crafting!!

Supplies needed:

  • Stacking Pumpkins

  • Dried flowers

  • Hot Glue

  • Perfect Paints Shimmering Acrylic in Red Wagon, Rain Slicker, Vintage Patina and Halo

  • Wet paper towel

  • Paint Brush

  • Rustoleum Spray Paint in White, Green and Orange





I promise you this is super easy!

  1. For starters I took the pumpkins outside and sprayed them real good with Rustoleum paint. You can use craft paint or even chalk paint, but I was already painting some other items so spray paint for the win.

  2. Once dry I then started with the green pumpkin and used Vintage Patina paint. This paint dries quick so I would brush down the grooves of the pumpkin and then take a wet paper towel to go over the paint and blend it in really good. The picture below is before I started blending it in.

3. Next, I mixed the Red Wagon and Rain Slicker to get the color orange I wanted and did the same thing to the orange pumpkin.

4. Now take the Halo and do the same with the white pumpkin.

5. Perfect right!!! Love these. For the next step I just hot glued all the pumpkins together and then started cutting my leaves and flowers from the bundles I had. I tried to not make the pieces large so that it would nestle in the cracks pretty well.

6. I would just randomly glue the leaves down first then add the flowers where I felt it needed some extra coverage. The wheat strands where a last minute add to emphasize a flower on the front. I really love how it added some pop. Paint the stem brown, add some string or ribbon...and there you go! This is so customizable for the season. So go out and buy up some stacking pumpkins before they are gone and definitely get some Perfect Paints Shimmering Acrylics!!


Until next time!
